Is our culture focusing on 'distractions'?

Dean Kamen is the founding force behind FIRST Robotics and there are a few in forum who are familiar with him and Robotics.
Today one of the many newsletters in my inbox highlighted Dean and included a link to this video. Long introduction but this is how I came to play the video. His focus with FIRST is to challenge and encourage our children to go into the sciences. This video isn't cute or funny - more in the line of thoughtful contemplation of where we are as a culture.

Our culture has drifted so far that we may, in fact, excel over the rest of the world, but we're going to excel at the things that don't matter.
